Marvel and MTV Geek have joined forces to produce Avengers VS X-Men: War Journals, an all-new video series going behind the scenes of the year’s most anticipated comic book event. Granted unprecedented access into the Marvel offices, creative retreats, key planning meetings and creator studios, this new documentary from MTV Geek shows just how Avengers VS X-Men was developed by the brightest minds in comics. Each episode will debut exclusively on MTV.com beginning March 28.
Following the immediate success of MTV’s newest hit show Teen Wolf, Top Cow Productions and MTV Comics are presenting a three issue comics series based on the show that will hit store shelves and digital platforms soon. When the new comic book series was announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego, the fans of Teen Wolf swarmed Top Cow’s booth for the exclusive preview of the comic and stood in line for hours waiting to meet the cast and creators of their newest favorite teen horror drama.
It’s a big stretch to take the small tidbits of information from the Deadline website and turn that into a full fledged claim that MTV is interested in producing the Locke & Key television series, but the Intardwebz is all hot over this, so why not go along with the crowd, offering our own information? According to the article, a DVD screener of the pilot was sent to MTV programming chief David Janollari, who apparently liked it. And who wouldn’t have you seen the trailer? It’s awesome!
Other than the DVD screener that was sent from Fox to Janollari, there has been no other movement, and I doubt anything will happen.
Mike Judge and MTV have announced that Beavis and Butthead are returning to television.
Judge joked that he brought the show back because he felt like TV was getting too smart. He explained that originally, he ended the series after being burned out, stepping away from the characters in spite of offers for sequels to the movie, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
Remember Teen Wolf, that fantastic comedy with Michael J. Fox? Sure you do – there’s boobies in it. Well, MTV is in the process of taking that old film that the fuddy-duddies like and tweaking it into something the Twilight fans will like. Here is the result.
That’s it? Where the hell is the big basketball game? What happened to that touching moment when Teen Wolf’s dad tells him it is inherited? Where is van surfing? And what about that moment when Teen Wolf bites into a can of beer and the party erupts in joy and celebration?
This is no Teen Wolf, this is a teen that is wolf pretending to be a sparkly vampire.
I never thought I’d see they day when Teen Wolf would be relevant again. Looks like the 30-somethings still have a soft spot in their heart for the Michael J. Fox flick and have convinced their superiors at MTV to bring the movie to the small screen for a 13-episode run.
“We loved the conceit of the original film and knew the title had a great hook,” said Liz Gateley, MTV’s senior VP of series development. “The creative challenge was to take that title and reinvent it as a horror series for the MTV audience.”
Production for the series begins this summer, with the expectation that we’ll see it on the tube by the end of the year.
To be honest, the first film was fun in a “turn your mind off and wait for the boobies to appear” kind of way, but since the cable channel won’t be showing any skin, I wonder if the series will be a horror series, or if it is going to be a mix of comedy, horror, or drama? I’ll definitely give it a watch when the pilot arrives, but if the network wants to keep me, it better be really good.
